What firms in New York would you recommend for “work life balance”? Say, under 2000 hour billable requirement?

Depends on the practice group, too. Some firms might have a <2000 billable hour requirement but still have/expect people to bill more than that anyway due to the nature of the work.

I just found out that after a mutual family agreement not to, my little brother is dropping his kid off at my mom’s for overnights. My mom has diabetes, high blood pressure and COPD. We miss her but have been staying away to protect her. Now my mom says she doesn’t care about the virus anymore. I have no relationship with my brother because he’s an abusive narcissist-but should I just respect my mom’s wishes and let me kids visit-knowing she has accepted this virus to be her fate?
